MS, Accounting, Finance and Economics


The Master of Science in Accounting degree is a 36-credit-hour program that provides the coursework and skill set needed for students looking to advance their careers in financial accounting, managerial accounting, auditing, taxation, or accounting information systems. The degree can also serve as a step towards a doctoral degree in accounting.

This program is ideal for students who already hold a bachelor’s degree in accounting or a related field, and who are looking to advance their careers in the accounting profession. The hours earned in this degree can be used to satisfy the 150 hour requirement set by the Texas State Board of Accountancy to sit for the Certified Public Accountants (CPA) examination.

Face-to-face classes are small and provide the opportunity for more interaction with the instructor and with fellow students. Students will experience knowledgeable faculty committed to the pursuit of excellence in teaching and scholarship.

Students have the flexibility to focus on courses that meet specific career objectives and related certifications, such as:

  • Certified Public Accountant (CPA)
  • Certified Management Accountant (CMA)
  • Certified Internal Auditor (CIA)
  • And more
